book on that position, historically in the united states. steve also was the coleader last year with former secretary of defense, bill perry with an assessment of the 2010th quadrennial defense review that seems like 100 years ago already in time so we time so we knew it fiscal issues the deficit debate was far different than in the aftermath of the n-november of a drug revolution when the tea party came to town and everything else happened has been subsequently what would like to do this morning is to begin by myself posing some questions to each of the panelists to frame the discussion and then of course go to you because we are fortunate enough to have television coverage today. when we go to the crowd, please identify yourself, wait for a microphone and ask a short question cannot be specific about who you are addressing it to if you would. i want to begin with alice because i think for a number of reasons that brought perspective on what this recent to accomplish is worth to understand before you get into specifics about its implications might eat maybe what they should be
